Find the best things to do in Cornwall for families

A marvellous location for a family break, there are ample things to do with kids in Cornwall! No matter how old your kids are, there’s bound to be something they’ll enjoy in this selection of family days out in Cornwall.

Is your family full of thrill-seekers? You’ll have no shortage of surfing schools to catch the waves with, such as Adventure Bay Surf School and Reubyn Ash Surf School. Alternatively, enjoy an exhilarating ride on Adrenalin Quarry‘s karts!

When it comes to things to do in Cornwall with the kids on the coast, the county benefits from a wealth of beaches where you can look forward to sunbathing whilst the little ones go exploring. We have a couple of recommendations, including Porthgwidden Beach with its rock pools and pristine sands, as well as Porthgwarra Beach with its café and promenade.

Other family days out in Cornwall include unleashing your inner artist at Paint-a-Pot, making a splash in Bude Sea Pool and seeing the animals at Newquay Zoo. Camel Creek Family Theme Park is another great family attraction in Cornwall, where theme park rides and animals are aplenty.
